Personal opinions today
U.S. February non-farm payrolls were revised up to 33,000 and returned to normal at 196,000 in March, beating market expectations for 180,000. Crude Oil prices rose to a 22-week high above $63, caused higher demand rose. But the average hourly wage rate fell to just 0.1 percent in monthly change and 3.2 percent in yearly, representing a broad slowdown in U.S. wage growth that limited the dollar's gains and gold prices rebounded above $1,290. On Wednesday, the results of the U.S. March CPl and the core CPl will be watched, with data helping to reflect U.S. first-quarter inflation and the fed's chances of raising interest rates. On Thursday, FOMC released the minutes of its March 20 policy meeting.
